This wine is totally natural. Nothing other than pristine fruit from the Jurassic Park Vineyard was used or added in its creation. After harvesting Chenin from the 35+ year-old vines, we crushed and destemmed the fruit as we would when making a red wine. The juice and skins were left together for 21 days. The wild yeasts that were present on the skins of the grapes completed the fermentation and the natural anti-oxidants on the skins provided all of the protection necessary during elevage (9 months in neutral oak) and bottling. The wine has a lovely purity to it. It tastes of fresh white peaches and Chenin, of course. This wine is a dream with cheeses and nuts but also exotically spiced foods. Serve the wine chilled but not too cold – you’ll want to savor its more delicate notes.
